In response to the concern for the safety and well-being of our community and the desire to complement campus safety and security’s response to behavioral health crises, Johns Hopkins University is developing a behavioral health crisis support team to serve our students, faculty, and staff and non-affiliate community members in and around our Baltimore campuses.
Johns Hopkins is dedicated to providing a safe environment for our community: students, faculty, staff, neighbors, and visitors alike.
Johns Hopkins Public Safety is committed to safeguarding our vibrant learning and working community through universal, progressive approaches to security that foster deep community relationships built on trust, cooperation, and mutual respect.
